Twenty-two years ago I found myself leading a cosmic contact cult called Nuahj. We were reckless young magicians dialing up some fascinating and dangerous characters from the underground spiritual network. Our modus operandi involved the channeling of discorporate beings claiming to be a wide variety of things, including alien intelligences from Sirius, ancient deities from Egypt and Sumer, assorted other-dimensional demons, ghosts of several famous personalities from history, Elder Gods of the Lovecraftian type, and so on and so forth. We met alleged aliens, elves, jinn, devils, spectres, vampires, and a host of other beings not so easy to classify. To navigate this labyrinth known as Chapel Perilous, we created an alchemical opus synthesizing everything into a unique map of our cosmic narrative terrain using 25 Tarot-style Trumps. What you see above is a reconstructed copy of the Nuahj Plates- a picture book of cosmic lore using all the symbols we were sure of at the time. This great opus of spiritual software programmed all of the cult member's holodecks simultaneously, fusing our realities into a fairytale theatre of horror, awe, and maddeningly true contact with a cosmic hyper-reality both objective and subjective, wearing whatever masks we had handy.
The Nuahj Plates served us well enough to survive the labyrinth on our own terms...saving not just our souls, but perhaps also "the world". So- you're welcome (wink wink)...
Anyway, I invite any questions! Just pick a number and tell me what you think. The tapestry is vast, but I can illuminate the various parts in any order you like. I think this would be a fun exercise in software schooling. The so-called "real world" is currently experiencing in macrocosm what Nuahj and all cults like it performed in microcosm. During any scale of Apocalypse, you always need the same thing: Symbols capable of processing the cosmic chi (aka "The Force" in Jedi terms). So I am offering these as a starter for conversation about the important meta-linguistic Tarot-ish issues of our Apocalypse.
